Many will agree that striving for one’s heart desires or wants requires going the extra mile sometimes. And it is safe to say that taking that extra step may sometimes seem extreme. However, when the result comes out as you envisioned, it does feel like the sacrifice was worth it. Kelly Beasley from Marana, Arizona, made news headlines when she took a quite shocking step to fulfill her heart’s desire.
Beasley loves two things: always looking good and enjoying the recreational vehicle lifestyle. In August 2023, the camper caught media attention when she revealed how she sold her home to fund a surgical procedure.
It is safe to say that Beasley is a go-getter who sets her sights on what she wants and goes for it without faltering. Back in 2015, she took a huge step of moving out of her Arizona home to embark on an RVing lifestyle. Beasley met her pal and business partner, Marshall Wendler, who shares her passion for camper life. Together, the pair created the Camp Addict website to share their experiences and help newbie Rvers successfully launch and navigate their RV journey.
In the same vein, Beasley also loved self-care and always wanted to look her best. According to the Daily Mail, the RV expert revealed that she started using fillers and getting Botox injections in her late 20s. She did this for 15 years, but when she was 48, Beasley realized she needed to do more. The blogger noticed her face was “dropping fast” and knew she needed to do something. At this point, her best bet was to undergo facial surgery. The RV pro researched all it required to undergo a cosmetic procedure, including a facelift, neck lift, lip lift, and fat transfer from her thighs.
On researching the cost of the whole process, Beasley was met with a shocking price range. The surgeons in the United States charged between $50,000 to $60,000. This was too exorbitant for her, but she continued searching to find something more affordable. On TikTok, she found a woman giving a positive review about a clinic in Mexico, and she became hooked.
The woman revealed that she had her procedure for $14,000, and Beasley was sold. She found a Facebook page for EOC plastics for the clinic in Tijuana and checked other women’s experiences. She booked a date for her surgery and took some time to think about it further. Beasley traveled to Tijuana and had her facelift surgery on Feb. 14, 2023. Before the surgery, the camper put her three-bedroom home in Arizona for sale. Per the Mirror, she revealed:
“I sold my house as a cushion to pay for it. The results are beyond what I expected. I didn’t expect to look younger. People say I look in my 30s. I’m loving my look and looking the most fabulous that I can.”
Detailing her surgery, Beasley shared that the surgery lasted four hours, and she woke up with her head wrapped in “a giant crazy bandage.” She included that there was “zero pain,” but she had to wear “a face bra” for two weeks. After completely healing, Beasley resumed her camper life full time, with her last recorded stay in Lake Tahoe, California, as at the time she gained media attention. On social media, her doctor, Dr. Fabian Mendoza Macias, documented her healing process,
Besides enjoying her “fabulous life,” she shared how she wanted to challenge the stigma placed on plastic surgeries. Beasley stated for good measure that she focuses on fulfilling her wants.
